Are we the owners of our bodies?

“A pattern which is set in advance.”

We know so little about our body, although we are living with them ever moments after we were born. Our bodies are strong machines(?)

Weiner, Norbert – What Is Cybernetics

Are we the owners of our bodies? Or, are we just borrowing them? After the death, the physical body would go back to the earth.

The individual never ceases passing from one closed environment to another, each having its own laws: first the family; then the school (“you are no longer in your family”); then the barracks (“you are no longer at school”); then the factory; from time to time the hospital; possibly the prison, the pre‐eminent instance of the enclosed environment.
